PREFACE 

This revised committee print consists of two parts. Part I provides 
Senate committees with accurate and specific information on the statu- 
tory requirements for expenditure authorizations as they will apply 
at the commencement of the second session of the Ninety-fifth Con- 
gress. Included are sample resolutions and budget forms, regulations 
in respect to procurement of consultants and the training of profes- 
sional staff members, and rates of compensation for staffs of Senate 
committees which, pursuant to the Order of the President pro tem- 
pore of September 29. 1977. were effective as of October 1. 1977. 

Part II lists all funds authorized by the Senate from the 83d Con- 
gress through the first session of the 95th Congress for inquiries and 
investigations by Senate committees. Included are the annual and 
any supplemental expenditure authorizations for Senate standing, 
select, and special committees, and any joint committees or commis- 
sions authorized to make expenditures from the contingent fund of 
the Senate. 

Since every effort has been made to include sufficient details within 
the text of this document, I will stress here only the most important 
considerations in respect to expenditure authorizations which should 
be borne in mind by Members of the Senate and their committee per- 
sonnel who will be involved with the procedure : 

Fiscal year. — The fiscal year for expenditure authorizations will 
be the 12-month period from March 1. 1978. through February 28, 
1979. 

Submission date. — All annual expenditure-authorization resolutions 
for 1978 must be reported to the Senate not later than January 31, 
1978. 

Single- funding format. — Upon the recommendation of the Tempo- 
rary Select Committee To Study the Senate Committee System, the 
Committee on Rules and Administration has adopted a policy whereby 
each Senate committee requesting funds for 1978 in excess of statu- 
tory authorizations shall report a single funding "inquiries and in- 
vestigations" resolution to authorize the total funding for the com- 
mittee and its subcommittees. Accordingly, each committee shall sub- 
mit only one budget with supporting materials to the Rules Commit- 
tee for its consideration. 

Consultants and training. — Any committee desiring authority and 
funds to hire consultants or to train its professional staff must include 
appropriate language therefor in its annual resolution. In respect to 
consultants for a committee, it should be duly noted that the selection 
of the same must be done jointly by the chairman and the ranking 
minority member thereof. Also, the Rules Committee must receive 
five days' advance notice of the intention to appoint. 

Budgets and supporting materials. — (1) Committee budgets should 
be prepared on the standard forms obtainable from the Rules Com- 



IV 

mittee offices ; (2) an original and 30 duplicate copies of the budget and 
supporting letter should be submitted to the Rules Committee at the 
earliest possible date; and (3) the supporting letter should, when 
feasible, be signed jointly by the chairman and the ranking minority 
member of the committee. 

Supplemental expenditure resolutions. — While not pertinent at this 
time, it is important for committees which may eventually seek supple- 
mental funds to be aware of and to comply with the statutory provi- 
sion that a supplemental resolution must have an accompanying report 
expressing the reason the funds then requested had not been requested 
in the committee's annual resolution. This provision is fully explained 
in the chapter entitled "Supplemental Expenditure Authorizations". 
(Seep. 11.) 

Increments to $10,000 per Congress. — Resolutions to obtain funds 
in addition to the $10,000 per Congress for routine purposes should 
be in the form prescribed in this compilation. 

Select, special, and joint committees. — In respect to select and spe- 
cial committees of the Senate, and joint committees financed by the 
Senate, the Committee on Rules and Administration has determined 
that the procedures and regulations set forth in this document will 
apply to such committees where appropriate and feasible. 

Once again, I remind all Senate committee chairmen that their 
budgets and supporting materials should be submitted to the Rules 
Committee at the earliest possible date, since it is the Committee's 
intention to schedule these resolutions as one of its first orders of 
business. 

The cooperation of all involved Members and staff personnel in 
expediting this procedure will be deeply appreciated. If the Members 
or staff of the Committee on Rules and Administration can be of any 
assistance, please do not hesitate to call upon us. 

Howard W. Cannon, 
Cliairman, Committee on Rules and Administration.

ANNUAL EXPENDITURE AUTHORIZATIONS 



Standing committees of the Senate requiring funds in addition to 
the $10,000 per Congress authorized for each such committee by sec- 
tion 134(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 must re- 
quest those additional funds (other than increments to that $10,000 
per Congress, for routine purposes) pursuant to the procedure set forth 
in section 133(g) of the same Act. Essentially, the requirement is that 
the funds must be requested in the form of an annual expenditure- 
authorization resolution, and that the one resolution contain a specifi- 
cation of the amounts sought for each of the committee's subcommit- 
tees. Funds in addition to and for the same purposes as those obtained 
pursuant to an annual resolution, must be obtained by supplemental 
expenditure-authorization resolutions (see following chapter). 

Statutory Authority 

That portion of section 133(g) which relates only to annual resolu- 
tions is as follows : 

Section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act 

of 1946 

(2 U.S.C. 190a) 

(g) Each standing committee of the Senate which, in any 
year beginning on or after January 1, 1971, requires authori- 
zation for the expenditure of funds in excess of the amount 
specified by section 134(a) of this Act shall offer one annual 
authorization resolution to procure such authorization. Each 
such annual authorization resolution shall include a specifica- 
tion of the amount of all such funds sought by such committee 
for expenditure by all subcommittees thereof during that 
year and the amount so sought for each such subcommittee. 
The annual authorization resolution of any such committee 
of the Senate for each year beginning on or after January 1, 
1971, shall be offered not later than January 31 of that year, 
except that, whenever the designation of members of standing 
committees of the Senate occurs during the first session of any 
Congress at a date later than January 20, such resolution 
may be offered by any standing committee of the Senate at 
any time within thirty days after the date on which a ma- 
jority of the members of such committee have been desig- 
nated during: that session. * * * x 



J As added, Sec. 110(a) of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Stat. 1149, Oct. 26. 1970.

Fiscal Year for Expenditure Authorizations 

The fiscal year for expenditure authorizations for inquiries and in- 
vestigations runs from March 1 through February 28 (29) of the suc- 
ceeding year. This 12-month period, with an overlap of two months 
into a new calendar year, has been established by the Committee on 
Rules and Administration in order to give the Senate sufficient time 
at the commencement of each new session to accommodate the several 
steps in the required procedure. 

Submission Date for Annual Resolutions 

Annual expenditure-authorization resolutions must be offered by 
Senate committees not later than January 31 of each year. The only 
exception obtains when during the first session of a Congress the desig- 
nation of the members of standing committees occurs later than Jan- 
uary 20. In such case the resolution must be offered within 30 days 
of the date on which a majority of the members of a committee have 
been designated. 

Format of Annual Resolutions 

In the composition of their annual resolutions, Senate standing 
committees are required to follow, with any necessary modifications, 
one of the sample resolution forms reproduced at the end of this 
chapter. 

Resolution Form 1. — This form is intended for use by a committee 
desiring additional funds only for the procurement of consultants, 
only for the training of professional staff, or only for consultants and 
training. (See page 7.) 

Resolution Form 2. — This form is intended for use by a committee 
desiring funding for inquiries and investigations, with or without 
funds for consultants or training. (See page 8.) 

Provision for Consultants and Staff Training 

Committees anticipating the need for consultants or considering 
training for certain of their professional staff members should note 
that the authority and funds for those purposes must be expressed in 
the text of their annual or supplemental authorization resolutions. 
The sample resolution forms described above are designed to accom- 
modate requests for additional funds for those purposes. 

Committees which do seek funds for either or both of those purposes 
should note carefully the regulations on procurement of consultants 
(page 21) and on training of professional staff (page 27), which 
constitute separate chapters of this compilation. 

Budgets and Supporting Materials 

Senate committees offering annual expenditure resolutions are re- 
quired to submit to the Committee on Rules and Administration ac- 
companying budgets together with supporting materials, in the form 
of letters or memorandums. All submissions should be in the form of 
an original and thirty duplicate copies. 



Budgets. — The budgets should be prepared on standardized budget 
forms obtainable from the Rules Committee offices. Several changes 
have been made in the form to be used this year. 

Supporting materials. — It is suggested by the Committee on Rules 
and Administration that, when feasible, supporting letters or memo- 
randums be signed jointly by the chairman and ranking minority 
member of requesting committees. 

Provisions for Minority Staff 

Minority participation in the appointment of temporary committee 
personnel pursuant to annual or supplemental resolutions is provided 
for in section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, 
which includes the provision that "The minority shall receive fair 
consideration in the appointment of staff personnel pursuant to any 
such annual or supplemental resolution". This provision, which was 
added to section 133 (g) by the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970, 
eliminates the need for the continuance in such resolutions of the so- 
called "minority clause", which had been employed for several years. 

Section 703(e) of Semite Resolution 4, 95th Congress, agreed to 
February 4, 1977, provides that the staffs of committees should reflect 
the relative number of majority and minority members ; that on request 
of the minority members, one-third of the funds be allocated to the 
minority members for compensation of minority staff; and that a pro- 
portionate share of space, facilities, and equipment shall be provided 
the minority staff. Funds which the chairman and ranking minority 
member agree are for the administrative and clerical functions of the 
committee as a whole are not subject to the allocation. Adjustment of 
committees' budgets to reflect the allocation of funds to the minority 
is to be completed within four years of the request of the minority 
members. One-half of the adjustment is to be made in the first two 
years. 

The text of section 703(e) of Senate Resolution 4 is as follows: 

Section 703(e) of Senate Resolution 4, 95th Congress, 
Agreed to February 4, 1977 

(e) The staffs of committees (including statutory, investi- 
gative, and clerical personnel) should reflect the relative num- 
ber of majority and minority members of committees, taking 
into full consideration employees appointed under section 
705. l A majority of the minority members of any committee 
may, by resolution, request that at least one-third of the funds 
of the committee for statutory, investigative, and clerical per- 
sonnel (other than those funds determined by the chairman 
and ranking minority member to be allocated for the adminis- 
trative and clerical functions of the committee as a whole) be 
allocated to the minority members of such committee for 

1 Sec. 705 of S. Res. 4, 95th Cong., agreed to Feb. 4, 1977, was suspended 
by sec. 106 of the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1977 (Pub. Law 95- 
LMI. 91 Stat. 83-85, May 4, 1977) , and was repealed by sec. Ill of the Legis- 
lative Branch Appropriation Act, 1978 (Pub. Law 95-94, 91 Stat. 663, 
Aug. 5, 1977 ) . ( See page 42. ) 



compensation of minority staff as the minority members may 
decide. The committee shall thereafter adjust its budget to 
comply with such resolution. Such adjustment shall be equit- 
ably made over a four-year period, commencing July 1. 1977, 
with not less than one-half being made in two years. Upon 
request by a majority of the minority members of any commit- 
tee by resolution, proportionate space, equipment, and facili- 
ties shall be provided for such minority staff.

SUPPLEMENTAL EXPENDITURE AUTHORIZATIONS 



Any standing committees of the Senate requiring funds in addition 
to those authorized in their annual expenditure-authorization resolu- 
tions may request such additional funds pursuant to the procedure 
set forth in section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 
1946. Essentially, a supplemental expenditure authorization must be 
in the form of a resolution amending an annual expenditure-authori- 
zation resolution (unless the committee has no such annual resolution) , 
and must be accompanied by a report stating why the funds now 
sought were not included in the committee's annual request. 

Statutory Authority 

That portion of section 133(g) which relates to supplemental ex- 
penditure authorizations is as follows : 

Section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act 

OF 194:6 

(2 U.S.C. 190a) 

(g) * * * After the date on which an annual authoriza- 
tion resolution has been offered by any such committee in any 
year, or the last date on which such committee pursuant to 
the preceding sentence may offer such a resolution, which- 
ever date occurs earlier, such committee in any year may 
procure authorization for the expenditure of funds in excess 
of the amount specified by section 134(a) of this Act only by 
offering a supplemental authorization resolution. Each such 
supplemental authorization resolution shall include a speci- 
fication of the amount of all supplemental funds sought by 
that committee for expenditure by all subcommittees thereof 
under such resolution and the amounts so sought for each 
such subcommittee. Each such supplemental authorization 
resolution shall amend the annual authorization resolution of 
such committee for that year unless the committee offered no 
annual authorization resolution for that year, in which case 
the committee's supplemental authorization resolution shall 
not be an amendment to any other resolution and any subse- 
quent supplemental authorization resolution of such com- 
mittee for the same year shall amend the first such resolution 
offered by the committee for that year. Each such supple- 
mental resolution reported by such committee shall be accom- 



(11)

panied by a report to the Senate specifying with particularity 
the purpose for which such authorization is sought and the 
reason why such authorization could not have been sought at 
the time of, or within the period provided for, the submission 
bv such committee of an annual authorization resolution for 
that year. 1 * * * 



x As added, Sec. 110(a) of Pub. Law 91-510, M Stat. 1149. Oct. 26,

1971. 

Accompanying Report Required 

Senate committees intending to offer supplemental expenditure- 
authorization resolutions should note carefully that they must comply 
with the following requirements stipulated in section 133(g) : 

(1) Each supplemental resolution reported by a committee must be 
accompanied by a report to the Senate ; and 

(2) Each such report must specify with particularity the purpose 
for which the authorization is sought, and the reason it was not sought 
in the committee's annual authorization resolution. 

Format of Supplemental Resolutions 

In the composition of supplemental resolutions, Senate standing 
committees are requested to follow, with any necessary modifications, 
one or the other of the three sample resolution forms (Resolution

INCREMENTS TO $10,000 PER CONGRESS 
(FOR ROUTINE PURPOSES) 



Section 134(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 au- 
thorizes each standing committee of the Senate to expend not to ex- 
ceed $10,000 during each Congress for the routine purposes expressed 
in that section. The text of section 134 (a) is as follows : 

Section 134(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 

1946 

(2 U.S.C. 190b) 

Sec. 134. (a) Each standing committee 1 of the Senate, in- 
cluding any subcommittee of any such committee, is author- 
ized to hold such hearings, to sit and act at such times and 
places during the sessions, recesses, and adjourned periods 
of the Senate, to require by subpena or otherwise the attend- 
ance of such witnesses and the production of such corre- 
spondence, books, papers, and documents, to take such testi- 
mony and to make such expenditures (not in excess of $10,0p0 
for each committee during any Congress) as it deems advis- 
able. Each such committee may make investigations into any 
matter within its jurisdiction, may report such hearings as 
may be had by it, and may employ stenographic assistance at 
a cost not exceeding 25 cents per hundred words. 2 The ex- 
penses of the committee shall be paid from the contingent 
fund of the Senate upon vouchers approved by the chairman. 



lr The provisions of 134(a) were made applicable to the Select Com- 
mittee on Small Business by Pub. Law 759 of the 81st Cong. (64 Stat. 
597, Sept. 6, 1950). 

a Compensation for stenographic assistance is now set by the Com- 
mittee on Rules and Administration pursuant to the Act of June 27, 
1956 (70 Stat. 360; 2 U.S.C. 68c). 

Prior to 1971 it had been the practice in the Senate for standing 
committees to obtain needed increments to their $10,000 per Congress 
for routine expenditures by means of simple resolutions agreed to by 
the Senate. 

Effective January 3, 1971, however, such procedure was precluded 
bv an amendment to section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganiza- 
tion Act of 1946 (by section 108(a) of the 1970 Act), which limited 
any additional funds obtainable by Senate committees to annual ex- 
penditure authorizations or supplemental authorizations thereto. As 
a consequence, from the commencement of the Ninety-second Congress 
through October 11, 1971, the Committee on Rules and Administra- 
tion was required to report out any requests (it approved) for funds 
in addition to the statutory $10,00*0 per Congress in the form of sup- 
plemental expenditure-authorization resolutions. 

(17) 



18 

Since that temporary expedient was obviously unacceptable for 
continued use, the Committee on Rules and Administration recom- 
mended and was successful in obtaining an amendment to section 133 
(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 which exempts 
routine-funds resolutions from the above-mentioned restriction. The 
text of that amendment, added bv section 3(b) of Public Law 92-136 
(85 Stat. 377, Oct. 11, 1971) , is as follows : 

Section 133(g) of the Legislative Reorganization Act 

of 1946 

(2 U.S.C. 190a) 

(g) * * * This subsection shall not apply to any resolu- 
tion requesting funds in addition to the amount specified in 
such section 134(a) and which are to be expended only for 
the same purposes for which such amount may be expended. 1 



1 As added, Sec. 3(b) of Pub. Law 92-136, 85 Stat. 377, Oct 11, 1971. 

Accordingly, requests by standing committees for funds increment- 
ing their $10,000 allotment per Congress may now once again be in the 
form customarily used. A sample resolution (Resolution Form 6) for 
that purpose follows :

REGULATIONS GOVERNING PROCUREMENT OF 
CONSULTANTS BY SENATE COMMITTEES 

(Restatement of Policy Determinations by the Committee 
on Rules and Administration) 



Statutory Authority 

The procedures and conditions under which standing committees of 
the Senate may procure the services of individual consultants or orga- 
nizations thereof are set forth in section 202 (i) of the Legislative Re- 
organization Act of 1946, the text of which is as follows : 

Section 202 (i) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 

1946 

(2 U.S.C. 72a) 

(i) (1) Each standing committee of the Senate or House of 
Representatives is authorized, with the approval of the Com- 
mittee on Rules and Administration in the case of standing 
committees of the Senate, or the Committee on House Admin- 
istration in the case of standing committees of the House of 
Representatives, within the limits of funds made available 
from the contingent funds of the respective Houses pursuant 
to resolutions, which shall specify the maximum amounts 
which may be used for such purposes, approved by such re- 
spective Houses, to procure the temporary services (not in 
excess of one year) or intermittent services of individual con- 
sultants, or organizations thereof, to make studies or advise 
the committee with respect to any matter within its juris- 
diction. 

( 2 ) Such services in the case of individuals or organizations 
may be procured by contract as independent contractors, or in 
the case of individuals by employment at daily rates of com- 
pensation not in excess of the per diem equivalent to the high- 
est gross rate of compensation which may be paid to a regular 
employee of the committee. Such contracts shall not be sub- 
ject to the provisions of section 3709 of the Revised Statutes 
(41 U.S.C. 5) or any other provision of law requiring adver- 
tising. 

(3) With respect to the standing committees of the Senate, 
any such consultant or organization shall be selected by the 
chairman and ranking minority member of the committee, 
acting jointly. With respect to the standing committees of the 
House of Representatives, the standing committee concerned 

(21) 



22 

shall select any such consultant or organization. The commit- 
tee shall submit to the Committee on Rules and Administra- 
tion in the case of standing committees of the Senate, and the 
Committee on House Administration in the case of standing 
committees of the House of Representatives, information 
bearing on the qualifications of each consultant whose serv- 
ices are procured pursuant to this subsection, including orga- 
nizations, and such information shall be retained by that com- 
mittee and shall be made available for public inspection upon 
request. 1 



1 As added, Sec. 303 of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Stat. 1179, Oct. 26, 1970. 
Definition of "Consultant" 

For the purposes of section 202 (i), the term "consultant" shall be- 
deemed to be a person (or an organization of persons) possessing the 
necessary professional qualifications and experience to assist a Senate 
committee in specialized areas of its legislative responsibility. 

Prerequisite for Procurement 

Any Senate committee desiring to procure the services of individ- 
ual consultants or of organizations thereof must first seek and obtain 
the required authority therefor by including within its annual or sup- 
plemental expenditure-authorization resolution an express limitation 
on the amount of the committee's total funding in such resolution 
which may be used for that purpose. A committee may not exceed that 
limitation for the procurement of consultants, but it may utilize un- 
expended funds within that limitation for other authorized purposes. 

Selection of Consultants 

Paragraph (3) of section 202 (i) contains the stipulation that "any 
such consultant or organization shall be selected by the chairman and* 
ranking minority member of the committee, acting jointly". Senate 
committees are requested to indicate their compliance with the above 
provision of law by providing that any required correspondence with 
the Committee on Rules and Administration (see below) be in the 
form of letters signed jointly by the chairman and ranking minority 
member of the full committee. 

Rules Committee Responsibility 

Section 202 (i) also requires (1) that Senate committees desiring to 
appoint individual consultants to committee payrolls or to procure the 
services of individuals or organizations by contract as independent 
contractors must provide the Committee on Rules and Administration 
information hearing on the qualifications of each consultant or con- 
tractor; and (2) that such information be retained by the Committee 
on Rules and Administration and made available for public inspection, 
upon request. 



23 

To assist the Committee on Rules and Administration in considering 
requests for consultants, letters from committees should equate (1) the 
proposed consultant's particular qualifications with the specialized 
area the committees plan to explore. (2) the probable time period the 
consultant's services will be required, (3) the correlation between the 
proposed consultant's qualifications and the specific committee activity, 
and (4) the per day consultant fee proposed to be paid. 

Methods of Procurement 

Any Senate committee possessing the required authority therefor 
may procure the services of consultants — 

(1) by appointing individual consultants as temporary com- 
mittee employees (at daily rates of compensation not exceeding 
the highest such rate which may be paid to a regular committee 
employee) ; or 

(2) by entering into contracts — 

(a) between the full committee and individual consultants 
(for an amount for services not exceeding the highest amount 
which may be paid in compensation to a regular committee 
employee for the same period of time involved in the con- 
tract), or 

(b) between the full committee and organizations of 
consultants. 

Appointment of Individual Consultants 

The notification of the committee's intention to appoint an indi- 
vidual consultant to its staff and the information concerning the 
qualifications of the proposed consultant must be received by the 
Committee on Rules and Administration five days in advance of the 
appointment date. If during that period the requesting committee 
receives no notice of disapproval from the Rules Committee, the ap- 
pointment shall be deemed approved. 

Requests to the Committee on Rules and Administration for such 
approval may be expressed as in the following sample letter: 

Honorable , 

Chairman, Committee on Rules and Administration, 
Room 305, Russell Senate Office Building. Washington. D.C. 
20510 

Dear Mr. Chairman : 

In conformity with section 202 (i) of the Legislative Re- 
organization Act of 1946, as amended, and your regulations 
pursuant thereto, we are notifying you herewith of the in- 
tention of the Committee on to appoint 

— as a consultant, effective 



tion in respect to his/her qualifications. 



-, and enclose the required informa- 



24 

[Include data requested in section entitled "Rules Com- 
mittee Responsibility", pp. 22-23 of this compilation.] 

This appointment is made under the authority of S. Res. 
( Section No. ) , agreed to 

Sincerely yours, 



Chairman. 



Ranking Minority Member. 

A copy of such letter should be addressed to the Financial Clerk of 
the Senate for his information at the same time the request is sub- 
mitted to the Committee on Rules and Administration. 

Procurement of Consultants by Contract 

Information concerning the qualifications of individual consultants 
or organizations thereof intended to be engaged by contract must 
likewise be supplied to the Committee on Rules and Administration, 
and should be submitted at the same time the contract itself is sent 
for approval. 

Letters from committees requesting the Committee on Rules and 
Administration consideration of contracts should (1) be signed jointly 
by the chairman and ranking minority member; (2) outline the pur- 
pose of the contract, the dollar amount, the term of the contract, and 
the name of the contracting party ; (3) be accompanied by the original 
and three copies of the contract signed jointly by the chairman and 
ranking minority member; and (4) include the background data sup- 
porting the contractor's qualifications. 

The contract itself should set forth in full the obligations of the con- 
tractor and, where appropriate, incorporate by reference the con- 
tractor's detailed proposal. 

Contracts (and consultants' qualifications) should be received suf- 
ficiently in advance of the contracts' effective date to permit appropri- 
ate consideration at a regular meeting of the full Committee on Rules 
and Administration. When contracts are approved, notice thereof 
will be given in writing, pursuant to the established practice. Approval 
of a contract will be deemed to include approval of a consultant's 
qualifications. 

Sample Contracts 

The following samples of a fixed-fee product contract 1 and a service 
contract 2 are included here to indicate in a general way the type of 
contract which would be acceptable for the above purpose. In most 
instances, of course, a form would have to be adapted to the specific 
needs of a particular committee. 

1 All moneys shall be chargeable to the authorizing resolution in effect on the 
date the contract was approved. 

2 All moneys shall be charged to funds available on the date services are 
rendered.

TRAINING OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF 



Statutory Authority 



Authority for the training of professional staff personnel of stand- 
ing committees of the Senate is contained in section 202 (j) of the 
Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946. The text of section 202(j) ifl 



as follows: 



Section 202 (j) of the Legislative Reorganization Act 

of 1946 

(2 U.S.C. 72a) 

(j)(l) Each standing committee of the Senate or House 
of Representatives is authorized, with the approval of the 
Committee on Rules and Administration in the case of stand- 
ing committees of the Senate, and the Committee on House 
Administration in the case of standing committees of the 
House of Representatives, and within the limits of funds 
made available from the contingent funds of the respec- 
tive Houses pursuant to resolutions, which shall specify the 
maximum amounts which may be used for such purposes, ap- 
proved by such respective Houses, to provide assistance for 
members of its professional staff in obtaining specialized 
training, whenever that committee determines that such 
training will aid the committee in the discharge of its re- 
sponsibilities. Any joint committee of the Congress whose 
expenses are paid out of funds disbursed by the Secretary of 
the Senate or by the Clerk of the House, the Committee on 
Appropriations of the Senate, and the Majority Policy Com- 
mittee and Minority Policy Committee of the Senate are each 
authorized to expend, for the purpose of providing assistance 
in accordance with paragraphs (2), (3), and (4) of this sub- 
section for members of its staff in obtaining such training, 
any part of amounts appropriated to that committee. 1 

(2) Such assistance may be in the form of continuance of 
pay during periods of training or grants of funds to pay 
tuition, fees, or such other expenses of training, or both 
as may be approved by the Committee on Rules and Admin- 
istration or the Committee on House Administration, as the 
case may be. 

1 As added, Sec. 5(b) of Pub. Law 92-136, 85 Stat. 378, Oct. 11, 1971. 

(27) 



28 

(3) A committee providing assistance under this subsec- 
tion shall obtain from any employee receiving such assist- 
ance such agreement with respect to continued employment 
with the committee as the committee may deem necessary 
to assure that it will receive the benefits of such employee's 
services upon completion of his training. 

(4) During any period for which an employee is separated 
from employment with a committee for the purpose of 
undergoing training under this subsection, such employee 
shall be considered to have performed service (in a nonpay 
status) as an employee of the committee at the rate of com- 
pensation received immediately prior to commencing such 
training (including any increases in compensation provided 
by law during the period of training) for the purposes of — 

(A) subchapter III (relating to civil service retire- 
ment) of chapter 83 of title 5, United States Code, 

(B) chapter 87 (relating to Federal employees group 
life insurance) of title 5, United States Code, and 

(C) chapter 89 (relating to Federal employees group 
health insurance) of title 5, United States Code. 2 



2 As added, Sec. 304 of Pub. Law 91-510, 84 Stat. 1180, Oct. 26, 1970. 

Summary of Essential Requirements 

"While the provisions of section 202 (j) and the regulations issued 
pursuant thereto by the Committee on Rules and Administration are 
deemed quite explicit, Senate committees desiring specialized training 
for any of their professional staff members should especially note the 
following observations: 

(1) As is the case in respect to consultants, committees desiring 
authority and funds for the training of their professional stalls must 
include a specific allotment for the same in their annual or supple- 
mental expenditure-authorization resolutions. 

(2) That portion of the committee's total funds which is allotted 
for training may not be exceeded for that purpose. A committee is not 
precluded, however, from expending funds from that allotment for 
other authorized purposes. 

(3) Approval by the Senate of a resolution containing such a train- 
ing allotment, however, does not complete the requirements. Specific 
requests, on an individual basis and in conformity with the regulations 
which follow below, must be submitted to the Committee on Rules and 
Administration for final approval. 

(4) While the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 limited the 
training privilege to standing committees (except Appropriations), 
Public Law 92-136 (85 Stat. 378, Oct. 11, 1971) has extended the same 
privilege to joint committees, to the Senate Appropriations Com- 
mittee, and to the Senate Majority and Minority Policy Committees. 



29 

The regulations issued by the Committee on Rules and Administra- 
tion in respect to training of professional staff members of Senate com- 
mittees, including a sample form for the required "Agreement on 
Continued Employment'*, are as follows : 

Regulations Governing Training of Professional Staff Personnel 
of Senate Committees 

(Adopted by the Committee on Rules and Administration 
on October 20, 1971) 

Section 202 (j) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946, as 
amended by section 304 of Public Law 91-510, approved October 26, 
1970, provides for the expenditure of funds available to standing com- 
mittees of the Senate for the specialized training of professional staff 
personnel under certain conditions enumerated therein, including the 
approval of the Committee on Rules and Administration. 

The Committee on Rules and Administration has determined that 
attendance at conferences, seminars, or briefings by authorized pro- 
fessional stall personnel will not be considered as training underthe 
statutory provisions of section 202 (j) when the following conditions 
apply : 

1. The sponsoring organization has been requested to waive or 
reduce the attendance or registration fee for Government 
participation ; 

2. The fee involved (actual or reduced) is not in excess of 
$ld0; and 

3. The duration of the meeting does not exceed five days. 
"When all three of the above limitations are met, fees and travel- 
ing expenses involved may be incurred by authorized standing com- 
mittees without specific advance approval of the Committee on Rules 
and Administration. A fee or time duration for meetings in excess of 
the aforementioned must be approved in advance by the Committee 
on Rules and Administration at which time that Committee will 
determine the classification of the proposed charges as either "train- 
ing'' which requires compliance with all of the provisions of section 
202 (j ) , or "non-training". 

Under the authority granted to it to supervise staff training, the 
Committee on Rules and Administration has adopted the following 
definitions : 

1. Training 

Training means the process of providing for and making available 
to an employee, and placing or enrolling the employee in, a planned, 
prepared, and coordinated program, course, curriculum, subject, sys- 
tem, or routine of instruction or education, in scientific, professional, 
or technical fields which are or will be directly related to the per- 



30 

formance by the employee of official duties for the Senate, in order 
to increase the knowledge, proficiency, ability, skill, and qualifications 
of the employee in the performance of official duties. 

2. Training Expenses 

The following will be considered as "Training Expenses" : 

(a) Compensation paid an employee during training periods 
in excess of 15 days. (Excludes the compensation cost involved in 
seminar attendance within the two-week range. In these cases, the 
training expense would be the fees involved and travel expenses 
incurred, which would be processed on one voucher.) 

( b ) Travel expenses incurred in direct connection with training. 

(c) Tuition, matriculation and other required fees incident 
thereto. 

(d) Such other direct expenses as may be necessary and as ap- 
proved by the Committee on Rules and Administration. 

(e) Fund grants, in lieu of actual expenses, as approved by the 
Committee on Rules and Administration. 

The following stipulations shall obtain in respect to agreements on 
continued employment (section 202(j) (3) ) : 

1. Each request for approval of a training authorization of more 
than 15 days duration shall be accompanied by a copy of the agree- 
ment specifying a continued employment after training period, as re- 
quired by section 202 (j) (3), signed by the employee; and 

2. Each such agreement shall contain a warranty by said employee 
that a repayment of the training expenditure (excluding compensa- 
tion) on a pro rata basis commensurate with the unexpired portion of 
the specified continuous employment period will be made by said 
employee should he leave the government service prior to the full 
discharge of his obligation under said agreement. The Committee on 
Rules and Administration shall be notified immediately of any in- 
stance of default. 

(A sample form which may be used for such agreements on con- 
tinued employment is included at the end of these regulations.) 

The separation of an employee from a committee for a limited and 
specified period for the purpose of training, but continuing that em- 
ployee's benefits as specified by section 202 (j) (4), shall also require 
advance approval of the Committee on Rules and Administration. 

A committee desiring to provide assistance for the specialized train- 
ing of one or more of its professional staff shall submit its request, 
in writing, to the Committee on Rules and Administration sufficiently 
in advance of the proposed training date to allow ample time for de- 
cision and reply. The requests shall contain complete explanatory de- 
tails and comply strictly with the requirements of section 202(j) and 
these regulations.

AGREEMENT ON CONTINUED EMPLOYMENT 

This agreement is made and executed this day of — , 19 — , 

in Washington, D.C., between the Committee on 



of the United States Senate (hereafter referred to as the "Committee") and 
(hereafter referred to as the "Employee"). The Commit- 
tee and the Employee mutually agree as follows : 

1. The Committee agrees to pay the following expenses of the Employee related 
to training received by him while enrolled in • 

at during the period from through 



(1) 
(2) 
(3) 
(4) 
(5) 

2. The Employee agrees to continue in the employment of the Committee for 

a period of commencing after the Employee completes his training 

referred to in paragraph 1 of this agreement, unless such employment is termi- 
nated prior to the end of such period as a result of (1) the death of the Em- 
ployee, (2) disability of the Employee, (3) the desire of the Committee to termi- 
nate the employment of the Employee, or (4) the consent of the Committee to 
the appointment of the Employee to another position in the United States 
Government 

3. The Employee agrees that, if he is separated from employment with the 
Committee for any reason other than one of the reasons specified in paragraph 2 
of this agreement, and such separation occurs prior to the expiration of a period 
of continuous employment equal in duration to the period specified in paragraph 
2, he will make repayment to the United States Government of those training 
expenses referred to in paragraph 1 (other than compensation) on a pro rata 
basis commensurate with the portion of such period remaining to be served by 
the Employee at the time of such separation. For the purposes of this para- 
graph, employment with the Committee includes employment with any other 
department, agency, or establishment of the United States Government with the 
consent of the Committee. 

4. The Committee and the Employee agree that this agreement shall have no 
effect unless the training expenses referred to in paragraph 1 are approved 
by the Committee on Rules and Administration of the Senate. 

Witness our hands the day and year first written above.

to in section 105 (e) (1) of such Act. as amended and modified. 

(b)(1) In the case of a Senator who is the chairman or

gross rates of compensation of all staff employees of that com- 
mittee or subcommittee (i) whose appointment is made, ap- 
proved, or recommended and (ii) whose continued employ- 
ment is not disapproved by such Senator, if such employees are 
employed for the purpose of assisting such Senator solely 
and directly in his duties as a member of such committee or 
subcommittee thereof as the case may be. or (B) the amount

tion shall be certified by him to the chairman and ranking 
minority member of the committee with respect to which such 
designation is made. Such employee shall be accorded all 
privileges of a professional staff member (whether perma- 
nent or investigatory) of such committee including access to 
all committee sessions and files, except that any such commit- 
tee may restrict access to its sessions to one staff member per 
Senator at a time and require, if classified material is being 
handled or discussed, that any staff member possess the ap- 
propriate security clearance before being allowed access to 
such material or to discussion of it. Nothing contained in this 
paragraph shall be construed to prohibit a committee .from 
adopting policies and practices with respect to the application 
of this subsection which are similar to the policies and prac- 
tices adopted with respect to the application of section 705

(2) by striking out "(ii)" and inserting in lieu thereof

subsection (h) thereof) is repealed. 

(f) This section, and the amendments made by subsection 

(d) and the repeals made by subsection (e) , shall take effect on 
October 1, 1977. 

Temporary Staff 

Most Senate committees augment their permanent staffs by the 
use of temporary employees, usually authorized for 1 year. Such 
temporary committee employees are authorized as the consequence of 
Senate approval of annual or supplemental expenditure authorization 



43 

resolutions providing its committees with additional funds for inquiries 
and investigations. Such funds are used by the committees not only 
to hire personnel but to meet other operating expenses as well. 

Unlike other standing committees, the Appropriations Committee 
has a permanent authorization for funds for inquiries and investiga- 
tions (S. Res. 193, 78th Cong., Oct. 14, 1943), which funds are provided 
by the annual legislative appropriation acts. 

Information regarding amounts authorized for Senate committees 
for the employment of temporary personnel, and the payment of 
expenses for inquiries and investigations may be found in part II of 
this compilation, which follows on page 49. 



REGULATION TO PROVIDE MORE EFFECTIVE CONTROL 
OVER PAYMENTS MADE FROM CONTINGENT FUND OF 
THE SENATE 

(Adopted by the Committee on Rules and Administration 
on October 22, 1975) 



Each activity authorized to make expenditures from the Contingent 
Fund of the Senate shall maintain an account of funds so authorized 
and expended, which account shall be reconciled at least semi-annually 
with the account maintained for such activity by the Senate Disburs- 
ing Office. Each reconciliation shall also include an audit of any and 
all cash advances made to the respective activity under authority of 
Public Law 118, 81st Congress (2 U.S.C. 69) . 

The Financial Clerk is directed to report to the Committee on Rules 
and Administration each time the accounts are reconciled and identify 
any exceptions arising from the account reconciliation or audit of cash 
advances. All activities subject to this regulation are hereby directed 
to complete the first account reconciliation and audit of cash advances 
no later than February 29, 1976. 

Activities authorized to make expenditures from the Contingent 
Fund may not obtain cash advances in excess of $5,000 in the aggre- 
gate, at any time unless otherwise authorized by law. Any such activity 
having cash advances in excess of $5,000 on the effective date of this 
regulation shall, on or before February 29, 1976, reduce such advances 
to the maximum authorized by this regulation unless the activity re- 
quests, in writing, authority from the Committee on Rules and" Ad- 
ministration to maintain a cash advance in excess of the maximum 
set forth herein by stating the additional amount required and the 
need for such additional amount. 

The Assistant Chief Clerk (Auditor) of the Committee on Rules 
and Administration shall (1) maintain a record of the reports filed 
by the Financial Clerk, (2) examine and investigate all reports con- 
taining exceptions and report his findings to the Committee, and (3) 
notify any activity that has not complied with this regulation. 

Activity as used in this regulation includes all standing committees, 
subcommittees, joint committees, select and special committees, offices 
and commissions, whether funded by an appropriation or a Senate 
resolution.

Part II 

FUNDS AUTHORIZED FOR SENATE COMMITTEES 
83D CONGRESS THROUGH 95TH CONGRESS, 1ST SESSION 



NOTES ON THE TABLES 

Scope of the compilation. — The following tables indicate all funds authorized by 
the Senate from the 83d Congress through the first session of the 95th Congress 
for inquiries and investigations by Senate committees. Included are the annual 
and any supplemental expenditure authorizations for Senate standing, select, 
and special committees, and any joint committees or commissions authorized to 
make expenditures from the contingent fund of the Senate. 

Fiscal year for Senate inquiries. — To provide time at the commencement of each 
new session of Congress for Senate committees to prepare their budgets for in- 
vestigations and to have resolutions authorizing such investigations considered 
and approved by the Senate, the Committee on Rules and Administration has 
determined that the fiscal year for Senate inquiries shall overlap the calendar 
year. For many years that overlap was 1 month, and the fiscal year ran from 
February 1 through January 31 of the following year. During the first session of 
the 92d Congress the committee temporarily set the fiscal year at 13 months in 
order to increase the overlap to 2 months. Commencing with the second session of 
the 92d Congress the fiscal year thus became March 1 through the end of the 
succeeding February, which continues to be the fiscal year for the purpose. 

Unless otherwise indicated by footnote, the authorizations shown in the tables 
which follow are for periods as expressed above. 

Investigative funds. — For the purposes of this compilation the funds received by 
Senate committees for inquiries and investigations, generally on the fiscal-year 
basis described above, are termed "investigative funds." Such funds may be used 
by committees to hire additional personnel and to pay additional expenses incurred 
by the investigations. 

Statutory funds. — In order to complete the picture, the tables include the 
statutory $10,000 per Congress granted each standing committee of the Senate 
pursuant to section 134(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (Aug. 
2, 1946, 60 Stat. 831, 832; 2 U.S.C. 190(b)). Such funds and any increments thereto 
may be used by committees for the routine purposes specified in the act, but may 
not be used to employ additional personnel. 

Select Committee on Small Business. — The Select Committee on Small Business 
is shown in a separate table in this compilation, since it has been granted the same 
statutory $10,000 per Cor cress authori zed for standing committees (Public Law 
759, 81st Cong.; Sept. 6, 1950, 64 Stat. 597) as well as the same permanent staff 
of six professional and six clerical assistants granted standing committees (Public 
Law 759, 81st Cong.; Sept. 6, 1950, 64 Stat. 595).
